The ‘80s TZ was shot on film but edited on video (ala Star Trek TNG), so unless CBS wants to go back and reconstruct every episode of the series using the original camera negatives (if they even still exist), then the show will always look like SD video. Because that’s what the edited episode masters are.

^ I am enjoying it, it's nuts. Bite sized episodes, easy to pick up and put down. Not as likely to binge this as something less formulaic with a stronger arc. In my opinion the best toku series released stateside has been season one of Garo.

They could still do SDBD or upconverts. Though, at this point, it doesn't matter unless the series ends up being as good as the original.

It would be nice if they would rerelease the 2002 version either on DVD or put it out on BD because I am not paying $200 for the old DVD set.

It's quite enjoyable. I have reviewed it if you would like to see what it's like. Link is in the topic discussion on the show in the Japanese Heroes section.

^^I remember seeing this quite some time ago. The only thing I remember was that the scene where the "scientist" explains his theory to a fellow teacher was quite humorous :lol: ...as for the cover, I vote for the poster art version.

Just ordered Shout Factory's The Howling 3 Blu-ray from Amazon. I watch it next month because for the month of October I plan on doing a werewolf movie a day to celebrate Halloween.
